Dr. David Halsey, MD
My approach to treating patients I believe in meeting patients' individual needs through comprehensive evaluation and treatment designed to help them achieve an active, pain-free lifestyle. Many musculoskeletal conditions can be treated by non-surgical techniques--surgery is just one treatment option. We combine leading edge techniques with proven traditional methods to provide our patients with the best orthopaedic care possible. I work to develop a partnership with my patients. On my part, this begins with listening. And one of the most important things I need to know is how the physical problem affects this patient's life. We develop a dialogue, through which my patients understand the diagnostic process, their own unique problem, their treatment choices, and the recovery process. Patients help to guide and direct the diagnostic and treatment activities. I believe that knowledgeable patients make the best decisions about their own treatment. That's why I explain every step of the diagnostic process. Next, I want my patients to understand their condition: How it developed and how various treatment approaches can improve or repair the problem. When we consider treatment alternatives, I present a realistic outlook on the results we can achieve. I'll also be frank about any risks that might be involved. If a non-surgical option is available, I'll explain that avenue in depth. Our purpose is to handle each and every patient visit with care and proficiency. It is also highly important to us that our Doctor/Patient relationship is open and honest. It is my responsibility to make sure patients are well informed about their conditions and the multiple choices of treatment. My professional staff and I will also provide you with patient education materials, (e.g., web sites, pamphlets, and video tapes) that give you added appreciation of your condition and treatment options.

in Arlington, VT |
Dr. Halsey did total knee replacements on both of my knees, one in September 2015 and the second in November 2015. The entire process was superior. My knees were severely damaged from years of high impact sports, work, and play. I interview two other orethopedic surgeons before him and he was great to work with start to finish as was his staff, especially Tammy his nurse. I wanted knees that I could use actively and selected him from a small group of surgeons that would provide Oxinium knees.

you hear the horror stories about the hospital - but my experience would give it an A+ with the folks I had to deal with, Thanks
in Richford, VT |
He repaired the meniscus tear in my right knee in January 2015. upon followup a few weeks later I asked how long I could continue normal life with this second time repaired meniscus. His answer was I don't know! Not it depends or for some it can last quite a while. Within six months I could hardly walk at times. I opted to see someone who could give me better answers to my questions.

Knee surgery results have been excellent, and Dr. Halsey is a superb surgeon and very caring doctor. He explained everything thoroughly, and I never felt rushed. He called frequently to see how I was progressing, and his attention far exceeded my expectations. I would recommend him highly.
